Testimonial from

I have had a wonderful time with GVI in Nepal. This summer has been one of the most amazing summers of my life because of the excellent friends that I know will last a lifetime. While I was here in Nepal I have felt like I’ve made a difference in people’s lives while volunteering. There are so many moments on this trip where I felt like it was a dream because I was the happiest I have ever been. I have so many great memories with great people. There are so many times when we would all be sitting around talking and I would think to myself how lucky I am to have this experience. One of the highlights for me was on the trek. We got to dance with the local people while having the best view of the mountains. I felt so lucky to have been able to meet new people and experience their culture with them, What I can conclude from this trip is that I have had the best time and made the best friends. I can also say that I will keep these wonderful memories for a very long time. Visiting Nepal with GVI this summer was an amazing experience and one that I will never forget. Volunteering taught me so much and it was humbling to see how our work made a difference to the school by improving the work environment. I couldn’t have imagined a better way to end our adventure other than the trek. Words cannot describe the beauty and magnitude of the Himalayas and sharing the views with all the great friend made throughout my time in Nepal definitely made it even more special. I truly didn’t expect to click so well with the other volunteers, but it was interesting to meet like-minded teens. I will definitely be meeting up with them in the future for more adventures.
